There is a strong comorbid relationship between conduct and substance disorders in youth. In the present study, 56 such youth were randomly assigned to receive either individual-cognitive therapy or family-behavioral therapy. Subjects in both groups demonstrated significant improvements in their conduct and reductions in their use of illicit drugs from pre-treatment to post-treatment, and these results were maintained at follow-up. (Contains 98 reference, 7 tables, and 2 figures.) (GCP)
